Welcome to the Wilmington Local History Site!

Update: The Library recently held a Scan and Share day in which we asked patrons to bring in old items pertaining to Wilmington. Here are the results!

Withing these pages you will find an always-increasing collection of digitized materials that are broken down into 2 categories:

1.) Digitized Wilmington Newspapers
